Winnipeg City Councillor Kevin Klein serving Charleswwood-Tuxedo-Westwood
The last few weeks my office has received many calls and emails wondering when and if the Centennial Pool would open. I have been sharing the questions with the Public Service in an effort to inform them of the growing concern residents have with the closure.
The City of Winnipeg has announced the opening of facilities and the Centennial is confirmed to be open July 31, 2020.
In late July/early August, the City will be partially re-opening all library branches, with the exception of the Cornish Library which is currently closed for ongoing renovations. The libraries will be open for holds pick-up service, telephone reference service, and to return borrowed library materials. The reopening dates for the additional library facilities and hours of operation will be released in the coming weeks.
The City is planning to re-open the Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex and the Pan Am Pool on Monday, July 20. The facilities will operate with limited access to the fitness equipment, walking tracks, and pools. The re-opening of these facilities will build on the systems implemented for outdoor pool operations, including pre-registered bookings for the pool and fitness amenities, reduced capacity, and increased cleaning schedules, among other measures.
More details on how residents can register for swim and fitness blocks at these facilities will be released closer to re-opening.
